Jaan Roose breaks world-record with Qatar’s “Sparkline” Walk

Slackline world-champion Jaan Roose walked the longest LED-lit single-building slackline across one of Qatar’s most iconic architectural landmarks! Matemade proudly provided a full-service production for Red Bull Qatar, combining years of experience in action sports cinematography and showcasing athlete performances on a global scale.

“Everything is hard before it’s easy”

Watch the full story below!

Jaan hovered above Qatar’s glittering night landscape at a whopping height of over 195 meters, making it Jaan’s highest urban Slackline balancing himself along the 150-meter line and showcasing his mastery of the challenging sport. The Sparkline walk added an additional obstacle, as Jaan had to complete the challenge between night and dawn, while navigating gusty wind conditions.

“The warm LED lights and their extra weight changed how the line interacted with me and my bodyweight, it’s like skateboarding on a big heavy tree-trunk rather than a light board. But we overcame the odds and completed this feat here at the Iconic Towers; it’s been very special to Qatar.”
